2011 Butterfly/Moth Collection

A nice collection with borders which can easily lend themselves to stitches. I like to think of these as butterfly's, though 2 of the 3 are referred to as moths by Amanda. An interesting palette of neutrals with black accents.

Happy Thanksgiving

Patty brought in her two pilgrim children, by Melissa Shirley, to show me today. What timing. They are charming and I hope every shop owner has atleast one Patty for a customer. Every project she approaches with a freshness and to labor over any detail just isn't in her. Girls apron is done in Ginnie Thompson linen (yes its been in the shop for a l o n g time) Edmar boucle for the hair, bright orange Trebizond for the pumpkins and oh so soft Renaissance Dyeing crewel weight lambs wool for the clothing. Since Patty is a descendent of the pilgrims these pieces will be treasured by Patty's grand daughter.

After a full day of eating we will all want to look as peaceful as Amanda Lawfords owl ornament. A thread kit is available seperately as shown.

Red, Black and Amanda Lawford

If you like red, here are just a few of hers including a gorgeous red color. Then I got the ah ha moment when I placed her ladybug canvas in the HP hand lacquered red box. Too much red? Ladybug also looks great in the HP hand lacquered black box or for those on a budget the Sudberry black gloss Betsy box works too. Please note the horse canvas shown while also for sale is from HP Designs and not Amanda Lawford. Each of these items are available in the Nimble Needle Web Store.

Amanda Lawford - A Bee Footstool

Found this in the trunk show and thought it was a nice fit for the Sudberry footstool. Canvas seems so reasonable at $83.20 (includes the 20% off). Footstool is 95.00. Would need to confirm but I think the design area is about 12" square and is on 13 count. Footstool would ship knocked-down
